Reading RoundUp #15

We made it to Friday, which means it’s time for my latest Reading RoundUp! Our schedule was blissfully empty this week resulting in lots of time for reading and Netflix 🙂 The over 90 degree days also encouraged evenings spent indoors. I’d prefer cooler weather, but I can’t complain about added incentive to read/blog!


Let’s check out what’s on my list!

Work Book (for lunch time reading):

Fall of Giants by Ken Follett – An epic historical fiction novel set in Europe during WWI that follows different families from different social classes and backgrounds. This book is a monster, but it reads quickly since there’s a ton of action and drama. Follett does a great job showing historical events through the eyes of various individuals.

Apartment Books:

Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel – My Book of the Month selection focuses on the United States’ discovery of body parts for a giant robot which were buried underground. The story is told through interviews, diary entries, and recordings. It’s fascinating so far! Also, did anyone else know this is part of a series??

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery – Ok ok, I said I was going to start reading this last week but I still haven’t gotten around to it. I promise I’ll start it soon! It’s such a short book haha.

Kindle Books:

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard – The second book in the Red Queen series is just as action-packed as the first. It’s not terribly well written and it steals plot / characters from other young adult novels, but it’s still entertaining.

From Around the Web:

Harry Potter Engagement Photo Session – Hmmm, we do have our engagement session coming up in the fall…

Travel Update – For all my travel lovers, Boarding Area just launched a new website featuring a vast collection of travel bloggers all in one place offering reviews and travel tips. This is a shameless plug because Jay is one of the bloggers!!

Head on over to my Book Discussions page and join in on the conversations about Ready Player One, The StandOutlander, and The Nightingale!

What books are you reading this weekend? Do you have any suggestions for another book I should add to my Discussions page?

I’m linking up with Show Us Your Books again this month!

  1. We listened to The Little Prince on Audible earlier this month. We read it with another family and then got together and discussed it. It was so interesting to hear everyone’s perspective on it. It was a strange but beautiful story. If you can’t get through the book, maybe switch to audiobook?!

    1. This probably would be a great one to listen to! I’m 2/3 of the way through already and I adore it. Strange but beautiful is a perfect way to describe it.
